I watched The Departed last night. Scorcese is clearly one of the great movie directors (not necessarily evident from this film, but from his career). But some studio executive somewhere needs to reign him in.
Somebody could let him know that not every movie has to clock over two and a half hours. In fact, a movie might be BETTER if you are able to cut out some unnecessary material, making it tighter. Instead his (very good) movies rattle onward, longer and longer, hurting the overall film quality and experience.
Stop Martin Scorcese!
